2009 BMW 528xi

Asked by May 16, 2018 at 05:01 PM about the 2009 BMW 5 Series 528i xDrive Sedan AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 528xi has problems switching into 2nd gear..
took it to Auto Zone and got this report printed,
says too many misfires in cylinder 6 in a
predetermined period of time. i got new spark plugs
for all 6 cylinders, just need to install them later on
today when it stops raining. usually they said, when
a report prints, it will say whats wrong, and if it
needs new spark plugs/or whatever it needs. So i
was wondering if you guys have any thoughts on
what it may be? it only has troubles usually when i
increase speed at a fast pace(entering highways)
and sometimes the check engine light gets thrown
up on the dash. but it doesnt stay on for long/goes
away when i turn car off aswell. if the spark plugs
doesnt resolve the issue, what do you guys
recommend?

A misfire could be from bad plugs, bad coil(s) or other things like a bad fuel injector.
